A map of the Orkney Islands, taken from John Sellar’s Hydrographia Universalis
A map of the Orkney Islands from 1690, showing the main island, better known as The Mainland, as ‘Pomona’, a rarely-used mis-translation. Taken from Hydrographia Universalis, or ‘a Book of Maritime Charts, describing the sea coasts, islands and principal harbours, in all the known parts of the world.’ Compiled, published and sold by John Sellar, instrument maker, surveyor, cartographer, artist and Hydrographer to King Charles II (despite having once been found guilty of conspiring to kill the King), and the author of the first pilot guides to the English coast.
